Zach was an extremely hyper child and only two things could calm him down: making art and playing soccer.  From an early age Zach had the ability to draw with both hands and kick with both feet.  When one hand would tire from drawing he would swap to the other until that hand fatigued and then switch again. According to his mother this cycle would go on for hours.  His feet felt neglected though and he eventually put his passion for drawing down and soccer became Zach’s main physical and creative outlet.  Which led him into the NCAA, playing for Newberry College and his eventual studio art degree.  After soccer practice one night, Zach stumbled into the ceramics studio and “re-found” his other passion.  Since that fateful night Zach has been delving ever farther into the art world, working as a preparator, curator and now as the studio technician at New College of Florida.  Zach creates art with anything he can get his hands or feet on. For Zach, creation happens in the studio and on the soccer field.
